Hi Soidog, Zeppo, Captain B
Thanks for reply.
Funny I am Happy here in the colonies - I still play cricket (just completed my 55th season) and am chairman of my local side, my best mate who has place in Thailand lives in Swansea and my other mate lives in Birmingham and is a member here.
My best female friend (friend only) lives 50 miles away.
Yes it does rain a lot - I think people die of rust here
Rent £500 pm plus electric gas and water about £1000 a year - local rates just over £1000 a year
Car tax £280, insurance £350 plus fuel, house insurance £130 and TV £110
plus fun and Thailand (u got a LB GF u always need money)
Enjoy working from home, do a few antique fairs and recycling things from auction to auction.
Have to pay big money for Dentist so now get work done in Khon Kaen
I might be 67 but do not feel or accept it
After 36 years marriage not sure I want to head for another relationship
I can get about 50000 bt a month without earning anything else
Can easily get address at my friends and get on register can transfer cards to that address
If we lived in a nice gated community near BKK or KK I would be very OK, but we have disabled Grand mother who cannot walk at all to look after and 16rai of land to farm so not easy to move, Might be different when Gran goes.
I think 50000 a month should be good in the village as she will have the profit from the cane and the markets to help
I still have a lot of stock to shift so will not make a decision until next year
I could come back to UK and buy at auction take back to Thailand and keep interested with my friend doing my Ebay
Oh yes I also have 93 year old father who is getting bad demencia so feel I should be around to help my step-mother.
But I do miss my two cats in Thailand and my LB who awakes my old memory
so as usual with me dithering and duthering should I or should I not
Will talk to my girl when I am over at Xmas for 5 weeks
appreciate the sensible comments
